Q: metaphorの発音を音声で教えてください。
Q: "I think that metaphor is good. Metaphor is a comparison of two different objects, for example you compared learning English to building a structure." この表現は自然ですか?
A: “A metaphor is a comparison of two different objects. For example, one might say ‘The dog’s black fur was the night sky.’ Here, the dog’s fur is being compared to the night sky.”

With metaphors, two objects are compared by saying that one object (the dog’s fur) is literally something different (the night sky).

I know this was a different example but I hope it helped. 👍
Q: What does "the metaphor of the matrix" mean?

I found that the people who are most effective, you know, and both effective and efficient are people who could see through the noise and really get to the signal. Be able to separate yourself outside of the metaphor of the matrix so that you could have clarity of purpose. And I think one of the things that’s really powerful also is just a lot of people, they give away their sovereignty and their power first thing in the morning. Like, the first thing in the morning they’ll just pick up their phone and they’ll check everything. Because there’s the way it’s set up, they’re getting their dopamine fixes and it’s really rewriting their brain.
A: the metaphor of the matrix = a reference to the movie The Matrix (1999), where the characters believe they are living in reality, but discover that they are actually trapped in a computer simulation by an evil artificial intelligence

I believe he's encouraging people to become less dependent on technology and use their own brain power rather than rely on electronic devices to remember things for them.
Q: Could it be correct to use "much" instead of "many" to make a metaphor? Might you tell me,please?:D
I will be glad if there were some examples!
A: There is some overlap in meaning. Use many when talking about indivual things like: many people, many times, many apples. Much has a sense of general plurality like; much fruit in the market, much traffic, much confusion after the accident
